In Thursday’s (1/29) Los Angeles Times, Jon Thurber reports, “Irving Bush, a trumpeter with a broad range of musical interests, including jazz and classical, who later in life served as personnel manager for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, has died. He was 78. … Bush started his career playing with many top-name big bands, including ones led by Harry James and Nelson Riddle. He also worked in the studio orchestras at 20th Century Fox, MGM, Columbia, Paramount and Warner Bros., and he played on recordings by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, George Shearing, Sarah Vaughan and Nat King Cole. … But in the early 1960s, Bush branched out into classical music and auditioned for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, joining the orchestra for the 1962-63 season. He recorded with the Columbia Broadcasting Symphony under the baton of Igor Stravinsky and participated in recordings for the Philharmonic with Zubin Mehta, Carlo Maria Giulini, Andre Previn and Michael Tilson Thomas conducting. In 1982, Bush moved from his post as the Philharmonic’s associate principal trumpeter to personnel manager.”
